A farmhouse in University Park? It makes sense once you see 3915 Purdue Ave., which blends Southern charm with clean-lined modernism to create a graceful, unique abode.
The 2015-built home beckons with a quaint front porch, but look closely and you'll see the board and batten wainscoting playing off the herringbone-patterned fence. The entryway greets guests with oak floors and shiplap wall accents, while the high ceilings, cool gray paint, and crisp, white, triple crown molding keep the vibe modern.
Contemporary light fixtures float throughout the 4,205 square feet, beginning with the icicle-like dining room chandelier and continuing with a trio of industrial-chic bulbs in the kitchen.
A long dining island topped with soapstone stretches the length of the kitchen, which is outfitted with stainless steel Thermador appliances and a wall of windows. A sliding door made of reclaimed wood hides the pantry, while a built-in wine refrigerator and an abundance of lower cabinets are ready and waiting for all your gadgets and goodies.
Off the main living area, with its cozy yet sleek fireplace, is a screened-in porch which overlooks the tidy backyard and heated pool. Sliding glass walls offer another way to blur the line between outdoors and indoors.
The lavish master suite connects to one of the home's four full bathrooms (there are also two half baths) and while the majority of five bedrooms are upstairs, there is also an en-suite guest room downstairs that has its own private entrance — ideal for a study or home office.
The price for this prime location and all the home's beautiful functionality? $1,750,000, and Victoria Barr with Ebby Halliday Realtors has the listing.
